Pointed west tomorrow a.m. to fill feeders for the first time on a new place with the other 3 guys. Our goal is 12 feeders and blinds operating and functional by Saturday morning. Gee, I hope they listen to me when I remind them I'm the old guy of the bunch.

Sounds like Terrell country. Love that country. DesertHunter has one heck of a ranch out there. Great WT and MD.
Trying to get out there this year.

I think I'm not too far from him. Leased a place a couple of years ago a mile south of where we'll be and I know he's a neighbor of that ranch.

I have 5 feeders and they just about kill me, these days. I need those ground-fill feeders, like Ramball makes.

5! How big of place do you have EK? Been going to ask you, do you live in Erath? Our farm was outside of Duffau if you have ever heard of there.

It is supposed to be a hot weekend, take care and good luck.
I have been working weekends for a few month getting all set up, glad to have it done. Ready for Oct 3.

I'll be making 2nd trip out this weekend. Need to top off feeders, switch one unit out and trim all shooting lanes. Then need to try and get windows on blinds and debug them. Can't wait to see what is on the cameras.

That reminds me, I have A LOT of trimming to do and I live here bang I even bought on of those electric poles saws this past winter to make it easier using my small generator, plus have to get my plot done before I leaver for Colorado Elk hunt in Oct. Time is getting short for us procrastinators.

There is a feed store in Fort Stockton that has an auger trailer and bulk feed. Might check into renting it or having them fill feeders if they are not to far from you.

Thank you sir. I predict that after this party, we'll be checking into that. This is a big combination of learning curve and letting friends figure things out for themselves.
